A guy from CBS Sportsline is saying on Twitter that Bill Geivett is seen as the leader and could be named GM as soon as this week. This makes no sense to me.

Geivett seems like a fine executive and all that, but he's a 50-year-old administrator who's been passed over for the last 20 GM openings. If Andrew Friedman was Choice #1, Geivett seems like a very odd Choice #2.

I hope Crane and Postolos aren't bowing to media pressure and getting desperate.

Sort of, but not really. If Crane and Postolos know this is a long-term project, going with Gottfried for a while is better than grabbing someone like Geivett just to fill the opening. I doubt a new GM would be allowed to come in and clean house anyway, so it's not half as urgent as people seem to think.

I just threw up. Astros hired Jeff Luhnow, a world-class jerk, as GM. NO ONE in baseball likes this guy. If Crane and Postolos thought it was tough hiring a GM, wait until they try to find people to work under this jerk.
